This publication contains the headline poverty and income inequality statistics. The associated tables contain all data used in the charts as well as additional data, for example, the equivalent before-housing-costs estimates where charts only show after-housing-costs estimates.

Additional relative and severe poverty and child poverty estimates including numbers, rates and compositions of those in poverty disaggregated by a wide range of personal characteristics are published as supplementary tables alongside this publication.

This and further analysis based on the FRS and HBAI datasets is published by the Scottish Government throughout the year on the Scottish Government’s poverty statistics webpages.
